if you have to wait for a shuttle the wait will probably be longer than the ride will be

They are all close so go with whoever you like/get the best deal from. The budget is a franchise location so no fast break but that didn't slow us down last week.
It was busy when we arrived at 12:30 or so. Had to wait for two vans as there were several large groups in front of us. Still only waited 15 minutes. If you get anxious there are cabbies sitting on the street right in front of the budget lot holding signs saying "no waiting". Several people opted to hop a cab rather than wait. Guess they were anxious to line up at the port to get on the boat !
If you are unsure I'd suggest you go print a map off on google map

Do all of the rental car companies near Port Canaveral run shuttles to the cruise port? How long (assuming no issues) should it take to get from the any car rental agency to the port?I believe a new location opened up not far from Port and they stay open when it is a afternoon Port Call. I believe the shuttle still runs also.

Free pick up and drop off...and a CruiseCritic forum discount. We liked them.
If you bring a car back to either Hertz or Budget at 7-8 pm and drop the keys in the box are there ample taxis in that area to catch a ride back to the boat? It may be a mile walk, but it looks like a long mile.If you drop off at the Hertz location you can just walk into the lobby of the Residence Inn hotel and ask for a taxi if one is not right outside.

I just reserve my car rental with budget and Days INN hotel pre cruise. I would like to know if there is a shuttle that I can take back to budget to pick up a rental back to the airport after the cruise?Yes, you can catch a Budget shuttle back to the location to pick up after the cruise.

We will be using the same vehicle to travel back home to MN once cruise is over. Since that works best for our family.
This is our 1st cruise. Dont know anything sorry! Have patience with me. Glad there is somewhere I could go for questions.
Have you considered two - one way rentals. ie, turn the first car in and pick up a second to go home. Just a thought.
This cruise was cancelled,we sailed Carnival Sensation.
